    SYKES' TAKE ON - COCKING A SNOOK AT THE COURTS

    Post  Sykes on Mon Jul 01, 2013 9:12 am

    Some of you may have read the latest postings on the antics of one Tony Bennett.  Mr Bennett is under a court order to cease and desist from harassment of a certain family.  For anyone not being aware of this - he was found guilty of contempt in disobeying a court order banning him from making accusations that they probably killed their child.  Besides a nice fine the Judge imposed a 3 months incarceration order at Her Majesty's Pleasure (valid for one year should he default).   For some time, with the odd foray, he has been fairly quiet.  However, this latest appearance is again walking a very fine line.  

    I am not too conversant with his style of posting nor with his using many 'socks' to cover his tracks.  However, I have now received some emails from people who have read my posts and they are of the same opinion, that the composer of these posts is in fact Bennett and that the blog where they show up is in fact his.
    .... that writing is pure Bennett. I don't know what he is thinking. Maybe he thinks no one will know that is him? I think he likes to think that he can fool people. What an idiot.
    I wonder what his mental illness is?
    I have no doubt that 'Felicity' is Bennett in person. and that he is also 'John Naylor'.

    Gary Hagland - The ‘mysterious seventh man’ in the McCann Team private investigations
    by Felicity Hathaway  
    The fact that nobody has heard of anyone by this name before connected to the case is suspicious certainly but he could have been more successful than others in keeping himself covert. It has been hinted that there were other people investigating on behalf of Kennedy and the McCanns before I believe. Maybe he was one of that number.

    If it is an elaborate "hoax" perhaps to create the illusion of a disgruntled private investigator in order to boost potential sales of the proposed book then I think it is going to backfire immediately. The McCanns would have to deny it and do so volubly.

    If Hagland is real then I suspect there is a lot more to the story than Bennett is offering us.
    And I would guess he is either now working with Bennett in some way or Bennett will be the butt of some serious legal efforts on his part in the near future.
    So, Dear Reader, is it Bennett?  Is he trying to get round the court order?  Is he trying to get another book published?   I am beginning to wonder, taking his age into account, whether Bennett is in fact losing what little sense he had and is now in the grip of extreme paranoia and a delusion of grandeur or even the onset of some kind of dementia?  I leave you to decide; I think he is again trying to buck the system as he has a long record of doing just that.  A final thought, he surfaces just as HiHo is the flavor of the month, so maybe he is trying to regain his position as Top Fool?

    This has surfaced on another forum thanks to them and the poster who uncovered this.  As it concerns the first post I am adding it here rather than putting it on the Bennett section.  It would appear that Mr Bennett, a supposed one-time solicitor is again indulging in his favorite game of plagiarism.

    Compare and contrast the Hagland letter to the BBC on behalf of the 'Madeleine Foundation' and quotes from Harry G. Frankfurt's 'On Bullshit'

    The BBC letter:

    Gary Hagland's letter of complaint to the BBC, 14 August 2009
    Tony Bennett Today at 10:40 pm

    On the evening of 14 August 2009, Gary Hagland wrote a letter of complaint to BBC TV East Midlands, on behalf of the then Chairman of The Madeleine Foundation, Debbie Butler.

    Two days earlier, a leaflet about the disappearance of Madeleine McCann had been circulated in different parts of Leicestershire, including some in Rothley. Earlier that evening, BBC TV East Midlands had transmitted their interview of Ms Butler, about what became known as 'The Rothley Leaflet Drop'.

    Gary Hagland kindly copied the letter to me, and did not stipulate that it was sent in confidence.

    Here, with absolutely no editing, is the letter he sent:

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    To: The Editor,
    BBC TV East Midlands

    14 August 2009

    Sir,

    During your East Midlands Today broadcast of 6:30pm Friday 14th August 2009, the show’s anchor, Anne Davies , presented an item on the activities of The Madeleine Foundation (‘TMF’). The item covered the recent, lawful, activity of TMF in distributing a leaflet in, amongst other locales, the Rothley Village area of Leicestershire, the content of which, inter alia, relates to the urging for a re-opening of the formal enquiry into the disappearance of Madeleine Beth McCann.

    Ms Davies opted to interrogate, as opposed to interview, the on-camera TMF representative, and Ms Davies presented such a biased and subjective ‘report’ on this event as to relegate journalism to the sewers.

    I strongly object to the gross lack of professional performance of Ms Davies in this matter, and I earnestly recommend that, in light of her plastic reporting, she revert to her founding secretarial crammer course as a more viable, certainly more honest, career path.

    The issue of the loss of Madeleine Beth McCann as a phenomenon itself is so vast and amorphous that no crisp and perspicuous analysis of its concept, let alone the event proper, can avoid being procrustean. Nonetheless, it should be possible to say something helpful, even though it is not likely to be decisive. Even the most basic and preliminary questions about this matter remain, after all, not only unanswered but also unasked. I should know.

    As a journalist, Ms Davies failed, miserably so, to professionally exploit the opportunity presented by the activity of TMF and to present a balanced account of events to-date and, indeed, the legitimate realm of alternative approaches as represented by TMF, however unpalatable to some such may be (though unlikely Madeleine herself).

    What I do know is that organisations such as TMF, and their related acts, have a proper and rightful place in society’s search for the truth as to Madeleine ’s situation. This child was: (1) betrayed by her parents; (2) let down by a retarded EU host state; and now (3) dealt further injustice by the likes of the stance of Ms Davies and your public broadcast organisation. As a viewer, licence fee payer, and founder-investigator for Gerry and Kate McCann from September 2007 to April 2008, I find such reporting abhorrent, puerile, and reprehensible.

    The contemporary proliferation of this sort of reporting also has deeper sources, in various forms of scepticism that deny that we can have any reliable access to an objective reality, and which therefore reject the possibility of knowing how things truly are. These “antirealists”, like Ms Davies, pander to doctrines which undermine confidence in the value of disinterested efforts to determine what is true and what is false, and even in the intelligibility of the notion of objective inquiry.

    One response to this loss of confidence has been a retreat from the discipline required by journalistic dedication to the ideal of correctness to a quite different sort of discipline, which is imposed by a pursuit of an alternative ideal of sincerity. Rather than seeking primarily to arrive at accurate representations of a common world, the individual turns toward trying to provide an honest representation of herself. Convinced that reality has no inherent nature, which she might hope to identify as the truth about things, she devotes herself to being true to her own nature. It is as though Ms Davies decides that since it makes no sense to try to be true to the facts, she must therefore try instead to be true to herself
    and her employer: In colloquial parlance, I believe the descriptive word is humbug – as in humbug reporting.*

    I expect higher standards of and from the BBC, entrenched dumbed down cheap and simplistic regional reporting or not. It seems all Ms Davies has perfected in her career to-date is, and I quote her “...the art of carrying a tray of teas and coffees, all the newspapers and a great pile of tapes - at the same time”.

    God help us.

    Faithfully,

    Gary Hagland, MBA, Dip.Comp.Stud. (Exon), FSI

    Extracts from Old Bullshit

    Any suggestion about what conditions are logically both necessary and sufficient for the constitution of bullshit is bound to be somewhat arbitrary. For one this, the expression bullshit is often employed quite loosely--simply as a generic term of abuse, with no very specific literal meaning. For another, the phenomenon itself is so vast and amorphous that no crisp and perspicuous analysis of its concept can avoid being procrustean. Nonetheless it should be possible to say something helpful, even though it is not likely to be decisive. Even the most basic and preliminary questions about bullshit remain, after all, not only unanswered but unasked

    And he's still at it!  I have never seen anyone so eager to dig his own grave.
    Gary Hagland's seven months, Sep 2007 to April 2008, close to the heart of the private Madeleine McCann investigations
    Tony Bennett Today at 6:37 pm

    Gary Hagland’s time with Kennedy and Metodo 3

    We saw earlier from the letter sent by Gary Hagland to BBC TV East Midlands that he described himself as a ‘founder-investigator’ for Gerry and Kate McCann, adding, just as he told me originally, that he worked there ‘from September 2007 to April 2008’.

    In his e-mail to the BBC, in which he gave his real name, his qualifications and of course his e-mail address, he added: “Even the most basic and preliminary questions about this matter remain, after all, not only unanswered but also unasked. I should know”.

    At the end of this post I will give a summary of Gary Hagland’s role and actions, as far as he has told me about them, that is, during his 7-month work for the Directors of ‘Madeleine’s Fund’

    But first, what was happening generally within the McCann Team investigation during this 7-month period?

    September began with the McCanns being made arguidos on 8 September, their return to England on 10 September, a ’phone call from Edward Smethurst, the man who was to become their co-ordinating lawyer, on 12 September, and two big meetings with lawyers on 14 (at Kingsley Napley) and 19 September. Two members of Control Risks Group were present at the meeting on 14 September.

    So far as the McCann Team’s investigations were concerned, these were some of the reported highlights – with other important dates slotted in:

    On 16 September, John McCann announces an £80,000 advertising campaign to be spent on publicising Madeleine’s disappearance in Morocco, Spain and Portugal,

    On 17 September, Clarence Mitchell officially resigned from the Civil Service and began to be employed full-time by the McCanns.

    On 22 September was the first public announcement, in the Liverpool Daily Echo, of Brian Kennedy’s involvement in helping the McCanns.

    On 23 September the McCann Team said that Control Risks group was only brought in ‘recently’.

    On 25 September, nearly all Britain’s media carry photos of Bushra Bishina taken by Clara Torres. Bushra is a pale-skinned girl being carried by a Moroccan peasant. Headlines asked: ‘Could this be Madeleine?’

    On 26 September, Brian Kennedy flew out in his private jet to Rabat and met Ali El Bouazaout, who becomes one of Kennedy’s investigators in Morocco. He said he flew out there to see if Bushra Bishina was Madeleine.
    In early October, Antonio Jiminez Raso from Metodo 3, formerly Head of the Catalonia Kidnapping Unit, and now, according to Francisco Marco, ‘Head of our Madeleine McCann investigation’, contacted the then current Head of Unit to ask for help with the Madeleine investigation.

    On 2 October, Goncalo Amaral was removed from the investigation into Madeleine’s disappearance.

    On 9 October, the media reported that ‘the McCanns have hired their own forensic team’.

    In mid-October, Antonio Jiminez Raso of Metodo 3 travels to Morocco with a Moroccan ex-pat living in Spain, Naoual Malhi, to research her claimed sighting of Madeleine in Fnideq, Morocco.

    On 17 October, Clarence Mitchell addressed a meeting at Coventry University on the topic: “Madeleine McCann: The Perfect PR Campaign”.

    On 19 October, the Head of the Catalonia Kidnapping Unit contacted Portuguese Police saying they wanted to arrange a meeting between the Portuguese Police and Metodo 3 - as Metodo 3 have relevant evidence for the Madeleine McCann investigation. He informs the Portuguese Police that ‘Brian Kennedy, not the McCanns’, is funding Metodo 3.

    In late October, a Daily Mail journalist flies out to Morocco to follow up Naoual Mahli’s claims of Madeleine being held ‘high up in the Rif mountains’.

    On 24 October, the McCanns announced the setting up of a 24-hour hotline ‘to be manned by our private investigators’.

    On 25 October, the approved sketch of the man Jane Tanner said she hads seen was published. On the same day, Clarence Mitchell formally acknowledged for the first time on behalf of the McCanns that the abductor had not broken in by jemmying open the shutters but had gained entrance by other means and opened the apartment window ‘as a means of escape’.

    On 29 October, Metodo 3 issued a formal statement saying they are ‘convinced that Madeleine is in Morocco’.

    On 2 November, there was a flurry of newspaper reports of another alleged sighting of Madeleine in Morocco, namely the one by Naoual Mahli, a 30-year-old Spanish resident visiting relatives in Fnidek, northern Morocco. But the actual ‘sighting’ had actually occurred on 21 August.

    On 4 November, a ‘source close to the Moroccan security services’ told the News of the World: “The [Mafia] gangs [in Morocco] can put the word out and will be able to find out things through the underworld network connecting every city, town and remote village [in Morocco]. When they want to find out information, they can”.

    On 12 November, Marcos Aragao Correia’s court case against the Portuguese postal service is heard. He alleges they failed to deliver a recorded delivery letter to the McCanns. He loses his case and has to pay 100 euros costs.

    On 13 November, Brian Kennedy, and Francisco Marco and Antonio Jimenez Raso, met with the Portuguese Police in Portimao. The two Metodo 3 men gave the Portuguese Police three new leads. Later that day, Kennedy and his in-house lawyer Edward Smethhurst met with Robert Murat and family members in the company of his lawyer, Francisco Pagarete.

    On 17 November, Spanish TV station Antena3 claimed that the ‘Tapas 9’ had met that day at the Rothley Court Manor Hotel in the UK. They claimed that this meeting was ‘set up by the Metodo 3 team’ and lasted from 10am until 4pm. The said that the purpose of this meeting was to ‘aclarar donde están las contradicciones’ (clear up any possible contradictions in their statements). On the same day, Metodo 3 claim they are ‘closing in on the abductor’ and are ‘100% sure she is alive’. This is not reported in the British press until two weeks later.

    On 19 November, Panorama transmitted a documentary on Madeleine’s disappearance.

    On 27 November, Robert Murat’s lawyer refers to Metodo 3 disparagingly as ‘mercenaries’. Around this date, Gary Hagland and Julian Peribanez of Metodo 3 talk to the sisters Jayne Jensen and Annie Wiltshire. Six weeks later, their statements about two blonde men and about Robert Murat are published in the British press.

    On 28 November, a statement on behalf of the McCann Team clarifies that ‘Madeleine’s Fund’ is meeting Metodo 3’s bills, and that they are being paid £300,000 ‘on a six-month contract’. Metodo 3 claims it has ‘40 detectives’ working on the case.

    In early December, Spanish TV company Antena stated they had Metodo 3’s permission to reveal that they were ‘receiving their payment from Brian Kennedy not Madeleine's Fund nor from anyone else’. This was later contradicted by the McCann Team.

    On 8 December, Kirsty Maryan, 19, ‘ key witness in the case’ according to the McCanns, Emma Wilding, 22, and other nannies from the Ocean Club, Praia da Luz, are featured in photos posted on Facebook ‘in lurid poses’. One of them is seen wearing one of the yellow wristbands sold to raise funds for the ‘Find Madeleine’ campaign.

    On 10 December, there is a meeting at the Arade Dam, Portugal, between Madeira lawyer Marcos Aragao Correia, who later admits that he is paid by the McCanns via Metodo 3, and Metodo 3 man Antonio Jiminez Raso.

    On 12 December, Mrs Jenny Murat, Robert Murat’s mother, in a TV interview publicly accuses Metodo 3 of ‘bribing witnesses into changing their stories’.

    On 15 December, Francisco Marco, boss of Metodo 3, said: “We are closing in on the four-year-old’s abductor and preparing to hand over evidence to police…God willing, I hope she will be back with her parents before Christmas”.

    On 26 December, Metodo 3 announce that they have received ‘347 calls’ following the McCanns’ Christmas appeal.

    On 28 December, British newspapers begin reporting an alleged ‘sighting’ of two blonde men by sisters Jayne Jensen and Annie Wiltshire, who were interviewed in November by Gary Hagland and Julian Peribanez of Metodo 3.

    On 3 January 2008, the McCann Team announces that they have, additionally, hired private detective Noel Hogan of Hogan International.

    On 5 January, publicity is given to a series of ‘sightings’ of suspicious characters seen in Praia da Luz, all reported to ‘Metodo 3 detectives’.

    On 9 January, the McCann Team said they expected ‘Madeleine’s Fund’ to ‘dwindle to £346,000 by the end of March’.

    On 10 January, a ‘McCann family source’ is quoted as saying: “We will carry on the search for Madeleine but not necessarily with Metodo 3. We are stuck with them to the end of the contracted period. The question of whether it is renewed or not has still to be decided. They have faced not having their contract renewed ever since Francisco shot his mouth off. It was made clear what they were doing was foolish and unhelpful”. At around the same time, Antonio Jiminez Raso was said to have taken several British journalists to meet witnesses who, it was claimed, had apparently been paid in advance to say that they had seen Madeleine in Morocco.

    On 12 January, nearly five weeks after the meeting of Marcos Aragao Correia and Antonio Jiminez Raso at the Arade Dam on 10 December, Marcos Aragao Correia claims that underworld sources told him that ‘Madeleine McCann was raped, murdered and her body dumped in a remote reservoir within 48 hours of her disappearance’. The media report that ‘Metodo 3 is now investigating’. He says: A paedophile ring may have abducted Madeleine and dumped her body in the Barragem do Arade reservoir’.

    On 25 January, Mark Williams-Thomas, described as ‘a former detective and Managing Director of child protection consultancy WT Associates’, was reported as saying: “It is an astonishing amount of money that is being spent focusing on Morocco. There is a big difference between a sighting and information. Unless you have definite information that suggests she is in Morocco then it seems pointless. The likelihood of Madeleine being taken out of Portugal is very slim. I would be concentrating more on Portugal than anywhere else. To me, it holds the key”.

    On 27 January, Metodo 3 is reported to be seeking to interview Joaquim Agostinho, a man said to look like a suspicious man seen by Gail Cooper. The same day it is reported in the press that: “A 10-strong squad of investigators mounted an undercover operation finding ‘strong’ proof that Murat was in the vicinity of the Ocean Club after Madeleine’s disappearance. Several witnesses were said to have given statements to Spanish detectives from the Metodo 3 agency, claiming they had chatted with Murat after the alarm was raised by Kate at 10pm. The couple’s lawyers sent petitions to senior Portuguese police to re-interview him”.

    On 4 February, newspapers report the search for Madeleine’s bones in the Arade Dam by Marcos Aragao Correia. The search had started a few days earlier.

    On 6 February, Portuguese Police investigation co-ordinator Alipio Ribero hints that the ‘arguido’ status of the McCanns may be lifted soon.

    On 9 February, the Daily Telegraph reports that the McCanns ‘expect to be cleared shortly’.

    On 10 February, the Sunday Times publishes an article by Christine Toomey: ‘Madeleine McCann and Metodo 3: Private eyes, public lies’ which is highly sceptical of the work being done by Metodo 3.

    On 14 February, the McCanns launch their ‘Don’t You Forget Valentines Day’ campaign in Spain.

    On 15 February, amid reports that the Madeleine McCann investigation is about to be shelved, Clarence Mitchell says: “If the case really is to be shelved then obviously we will ask that Gerry and Kate should have their arguido status lifted first. And we would also ask that our private detectives should have access to the police files so that they can continue working on the case, even if the police will not. It would obviously help our detectives to have access to all the police information in the case. There could be some forgotten clue in there which could still solve this case. Surely it is only right and proper that information that the police aren't acting on should be given to people who can continue the investigation”.

    On 18 February, Antonio Jiminez Raso, named as being ‘a Metodo 3 detective working on the Madeleine McCann case’, is arrested and remanded in custody in a case involving serious allegations against him of involvement in the theft of cocaine from a boat in Barcelona harbour and ‘misconduct in a public office’. It emerges publicly that he was formerly an inspector in the Catalonian Regional Drugs Squad. Clarence Mitchell responds by telling the press that Antonio Jiminez Raso is ‘nothing to do with us’.

    On 21 February, Metodo 3 detectives were described as being ‘back in Praia da Luz last night. They were seen studying aerial photos of the area’.

    On 24 February, the Sunday Express apologised for remarks it had made on 13 January about Noel Hogan.

    On 5 March, the Directors of ‘Madeleine’s Fund’ had a Board meeting. On the agenda, it is said, was the matter of ‘whether or not to renew Metodo 3’s contract’. They decided to renew it.

    On 7 March, newspapers reported that a second search for Madeleine’s bones by lawyer Marcos Aragao Correia and his team of divers would begin in three days’ time.

    On 9 March, the McCanns were reported to have pledged support for the search for missing Shannon Matthews. The disappearance of Shannon was later exposed as a scam.

    On 10 March, the second search for Madeleine’s bones in the Arade Dam began.

    On 11 March, the McCanns react ‘with fury’ to the news that Marcos Aragao Correia, whom they describe as ‘a fantasist’, is carrying on searching for Madeleine’s bones. They refer to it as ‘a distraction’.

    On 12 March, an Express journalist says that all journalists of Express Newspapers are forbidden to write about the disappearance of Madeleine McCann. At the same time, the McCanns announced through a spokesman that they were preparing to sue various media, including the Express group. Clarence Mitchell says that the McCanns hope for £4 million damages.

    On 13 March, the McCann Team announce that they are retaining the services of Metodo 3.

    On 14 March, Marcos Aragao Correia and his team of divers find ‘a small bag of bones’. The media report that “Gerry and Kate McCann were informed immediately by a private detective who was observing the search”. And Clarence Mitchell adds that “Investigators from their Metodo 3 agency were at the scene along with police”.

    On 15 March, it is reported that the bones were from ‘a brood of kittens’.

    On 18 March, several newspapers publish front-page apologies to the McCanns who announce a £550,000 agreed damages settlement.

    On 5 April, there’s a report of a ‘sighting’ of Madeleine in Tenerife. A tourist, Margaret Jones, thinks she saw Madeleine at the airport - and then ’phoned Metodo 3, after returning to her home town of Cardiff.

    On 8 April, Marcos Aragao Correia is allowed by the Director of Odemira Women’s Prison to interview child murderess Leonor Cipriano – and becomes her lawyer in a criminal
    case against Goncalo Amaral.

    On 15 April, Robert Murat announces that he will sue for damages. He later secured £600,000 agreed damages.
    During April it is thought that Kevin Halligen and Henri Exton of Oakley International were engaged to help find out what happened to Madeleine. This was around the time that Gary Hagland resigned from the McCann Team.
